Macrovision Analysis Of Recent DVD DeCSS Hack. Verdict: Not a Problem. Sent on November 15, 1999.
"Currently, there are no cost-effective methods of re-distributing the 'hacked' content - either in packaged media or Internet transmissions. Cost-effective recordable DVD hardware will not be widely available in the consumer market for another 2-3 years. Additionally, the new recordable DVD formats most likely will not be backward compatible with existing DVD players or PC-DVDs. Without recordable DVD discs, it will take multiple CD-ROMS (or other equivalent magnetic or optical storage media) to store or distribute a hacked DVD movie. If CD-ROMs are used it is likely that the consumer would have to convert the hacked DVD MPEG-2 streams to MPEG-1 video CD format, which is inferior in quality to the DVD MPEG-2 format. Transferring and/or downloading a hacked DVD movie from the Internet would take over 190 hours using a standard 56kb modem operating at maximum transfer rate, or over 10 hours using a 1 Megabit/sec ADSL line."
